11 Best Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Malacca, Malaysia - Updated 2023


Bundled with majestic landmarks, colonial buildings, rich heritage, and vivacious culture, Malacca is a pleasing mishmash of Chinese, Malaysian, Dutch, British, and Portuguese influences that are best displayed in the many churches, forts, and other sites here. The state was once an important trading port in Southeast Asia and while it may not enjoy the same prowess now, it continues to draw in much of the footfall for pretty much everything else. Malacca’s booming food scene is another one of the highlights that attract travellers by the hordes. It can be easily accessed from bigger cities, such as Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, so we strongly urge you to factor in this fantastic place to your Malaysian getaway itinerary. And, while you’re at it, here are some of the best Airbnbs in Malacca, Malaysia, that you can consider booking for yourselves.
